Prisma Cloud by Palo Alto Networks Room for Improvement

Governance Test and Compliance Officer at Thales
We would like it to have more features from the risk and compliance perspectives. On the governance side of it, we did want it, but the licensing costs for that are so high. As a result, I have to integrate this solution with a couple of additional tools. For example, suppose I wish to assign something to an organization or to another person. To do that I have to integrate it with something like JIRA or Confluence where I can ask them to provide the pieces of information. If the licensing costs were a little lower, I would have been able to assign it then and there. As it is, though, I need to assign it from one platform to another platform, one where the team of engineering people is working. I still need to go to multiple platforms to check if something was assigned, and I have to keep checking between the two platforms to see whether it's not done or not. View full review »

In our testing, we have found the Check Point product CloudGuard Dome9 to be more user-friendly at this point. Palo Alto Prisma's interface was not as user-friendly. Palo Alto should work on this part of its solution to be more competitive with ease-of-use. I do not feel Palo Alto is short of any features, but if we compare the two side-by-side, I think the user interface for Palo Alto needs to be improved to make it at least as good as Dome9.

In terms of improvement, there are some small things like hardening and making sure the Linux resources are deployed well but that's more at an operational level. Day-to-day, we do find a lot of issues but having a tool to help us with them is what we want because manually, it's not feasible for us. Other than that, we not really looking for any other add-ons or plug-ins because that was our core problem. View full review »

More documentation with real-world use cases would be helpful. Another useful feature would be greater transparency and visibility into the security checks being implemented. View full review »

The feedback that we have given to the Palo Alto Networks team is that the UI can be improved. When you press the "back" button on your browser from the Investigate tab, the query that you're working on just disappears. It won't keep the query on the "back" button. Also, the way the policies are structured and the alerts are created could be better. It requires a lot of manual work to search through the policies when creating an alert. These are minute nuances. They are not major issues and are more about convenience than they are product bugs. View full review »

I'm not sure about areas for improvement on the solution, however, I do think the compliance and dashboarding could be better. The innovation side of the solution could be more efficient and more detailed. View full review »

I would like to see the inclusion of automated counter-attack, although this is probably illegal. View full review »
